“It’s all been a little retro from India today,” stated commentator Sanjay Manjrekar on air throughout the Australian innings in the first ODI on Friday, as quite a few catches had been dropped and limits had been allowed with misfields.
India had been taking part in their first worldwide match since March, and it was an unusually dismal efficiency in the field from the group, sporting the brand new ‘retro jersey’.
It began in the Powerplay with Shikhar Dhawan simply failing to achieve a high edge off Aaron Finch, who would go on to attain a century. Soon although, there have been many such cases. Yuzvendra Chahal did not seize a catch, Dhawan missed one other sitter in the deep, Mayank Agarwal let the ball roll by means of his legs and into the boundary.
Even the likes of Virat Kohli and Hardik Pandya had been responsible of misfields.
India’s over price is appalling … !!! Body language defensive … fielding is my customary (stunning) … Bowling odd !!! Aussies however have been excellent … Long tour for India me thinks … #AUSvIND @FoxCricket @cricbuzz !!!

India’s fielding has been fairly odd immediately. Hope it’s a one-off. #AusvInd

The excellent inns for Aus up to now. Excellent Finch 💯 and partnership with Warner, Smith motoring and Maxi on 🔥. India want some magic right here on the finish. Fielding not serving to. Interesting run chase developing! @FoxCricket #AUSvIND

Finch, Steve Smith, Glenn Maxwell — all three of whom had a large affect as Australia posted 374/6 in 50 overs — had been all given reprieves by Indians on the field.
